A planned merger between two of Ballarat’s biggest disability support organisations will take place next week.

McCallum Disability Services and Ballarat Regional Industries will join forces bringing 520 staff under the one roof, although initially they will continue to operate as separate entities.
 
McCallum CEO Tyrone McCuskey says the merger will offer numerous development opportunities for staff.
 
"It will provide enormous opportunities for them in terms of career development, training and development opportunities, diversity of employment, both in terms of site and function."
 
"There's a great opportunity for people to move around, they'll get more exposure to a greater number of diverse employment opportunities," Mr McCuskey said.
 
The merger will officially take place from December 1st.
